Issue #13810 has been updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada).

Status changed from Open to Feedback

At r31672, date changed it but no description or rationale.

> * ext/date/date_strftime(date_strftime_with_tmx): "%v" means "%e-%b-%Y".

Does anybody have any pointers?

Misc #13810: Inconsistency between Date and Time.strftime("%v")

----------------------------------------
This seems odd. Each function matches its documentation, but the document and implementation of `Date.strftime("%v")` differs from the documentation and implementations of `Time.strftime("%v")` and `DateTime.strftime("%v")`.
